This page provides information, guidance, and resources to support the design and development of assessment and feedback activity. It is aligned with the four priority areas set out in the University's assessment and feedback action plan.
Assessment for Learning
Assessment for Learning (AfL) is an approach that recognises that assessment motivates and develops individual knowledge and skills as well as validating student achievement. Assessment is planned strategically so that it supports the achievement of overall course goals and makes the most of the resources we have across the institution.
Feedback and feedforward
Feedback is crucial to students' development as independent learners who are able to evaluate and regulate their own learning. Explore how you can support your students to understand and engage with feedback on their work so that they can feed this forward into their future performance.
Quality assurance and the student voice
Activity and guidance related to the quality process for designing assessments, including engaging students in assessment review activities to share their concerns and suggestions about assessment and feedback activity, including what has worked well, and what could be improved.
